Who loves to pay many hundreds of dollars for a new computer? Not me. Well, there are many resources now to get a good refurbished system for around $200 or less. Dell Financial Services offers factory refurbished off lease systems, as does HP, Gateway, etc. Ebay lists tons of systems and you can eliminate easily by selecting features you absolutely need and setting a price range (otherwise you are browsing through thousands). Don't pay retail when you can get a solid discount. However, if you don't know how to look for potential problems, either find someone who does to help you pick through systems, or go ahead a buy a new one, but try using a coupon or sale, etc and save a little that way.
